In today’s ever-evolving technical world, keeping our pupils safe online is always at the forefront of our minds. We appreciate that it can be difficult to know exactly what you can do to help your children navigate this world safely – especially as there are changes and advances happening all the time. Please do read our monthly newsletter (e-mailed to all families and uploaded to our website) and refer any enquires to our Computing Leader, Mrs Thurston. This month we learn more about Minecraft. Minecraft remains ever popular and can be a great learning tool that is often used in schools to teach planning skills, recreate famous buildings in 3D and coding. Players use building blocks (a bit like Lego) to create their own worlds. It is important to remember that when rating games, PEGI do not take into consideration the communication features of a game. Minecraft does include a chat facility, which adds further risks of seeing inappropriate language/content. This can be switched off.
